Movie with a message, but can't really be bothered
12 February 2006 | by Sic CoyoteSee all my reviews

I just watched this after having the video on my shelf for years! It's very pedestrian, the cinematography never tries to do anything vaguely interesting, the actors go through the motions and it just generally looks like no one could really be bothered.

The plot is okay, but quite thin. It's basically a message about the evils of chemicals and big business but by the end it degenerates into a standard good guys vs bad guys thriller affair.

Walk along nothing interesting to see here, competently made, but nothing of note.

There really isn't much more to say, except the date of first publication was the UK in 1989 under the title of Agent Orange.
